Ant-Plant Interactions: Their Seasonal Variation and Effects on Plant Fitness
Rico-Gray V, Oliveira PS*, Parra-Tabla V, Cuautle M, Díaz-Castelazo C
This chapter discusses the importance of nectar to ants, the effect of ants on plant fitness (either mediated by nectaries or Homoptera), plus seasonal variation and diversity of interactions in the tropical coastal regions of the Yucatan Peninsula and Veracruz, Mexico. Ant-plant associations in tropical sand dunes are abundant, relative to temperate semiarid or humid mountain sites. Studies at two coastal sites in Mexico, La Mancha in Veracruz and San Benito in Yucatan, show significant within-habitat seasonal variation, as well as considerable variation among habitats in the number, diversity and seasonal distribution of ant-plant interactions. They suggest that inter-habitat variation of ant-plant interactions is the effect of variation in environmental parameters, richness of plants with nectaries in the vegetation, and richness in habitat heterogeneity.

CA004-02 The Biodiversity Virtual Institute: a Brazilian experience that can be used as model for research programs on conservation and sustainable use of the biodiversity
Speglich E, Joly CA*
Despite increasing awareness of its importance, information on biodiversity is not easily available. Too often, information is dispersed, fragmented, difficult to access, not integrated with other information, out-of-date, and underused. To help overcome such problems, in 1999 the Research Programme in Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biodiversity of the state of São Paulo, Brazil (BIOTA/FAPESP) and the Virtual Biodiversity Programme ( were established. The programmes are based on the premises contained in the Convention on Biodiversity. The primary objective of these programmes is to study biodiversity of the state of São Paulo. Objectives focus on: understanding the processes that generate and maintain biodiversity; understanding the processes that threaten biodiversity; standardizing ways to gather and make information available to the public, policymakers and decisionmakers; ensuring easy public access to this information; and improving teaching standards on conservation of biodiversity and sustainable use. All projects are linked through the environmental information system of the BIOTA/FAPESP. This system, in turn, is linked to a 1:50 000 electronic map of the state of São Paulo. These systems, which are freely available on the internet, are being used by state branches in charge of biodiversity protection and social and economic planning. Finally, the BIOTA/FAPESP has also launched an electronic peer-reviewed journal, BIOTA NEOTROPICA, to publish research on conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in the neotropics (
